PACE setters—A group of BSC students recently camped out in tents on the academic quad for an entire week—even washing and drying their clothes outside—to spread awareness and compassion for people in the world who have been displaced by war and conflict, and as a result, lost their livelihood and dignity. The rainbow-striped flag “PACE,” the Italian word for peace, was hoisted during the demonstration, which was sponsored by the college's Middle Eastern Central Asian Alliance. “Although such individuals usually remain nameless and faceless to us, this is no reason to care any less,” says BSC student Marc Parker, who led the effort. Other student participants pictured (from left) were Emma Reagan, David Vanlandingham, Nico Arciniegas, Joseph Rychlak, Claire Hooten, Tyler Brown, Nicholas Pitts, and Bradley DuPree.
Best paper honor—The Academy of Accounting and Financial Studies selected BSC Professor of Accounting Dr. Ron Stunda (pictured on left) for the Distinguished Manuscript Award during its spring 2008 conference in Tunica, Miss., in early April. Stunda's paper was entitled “The Wal-Mart Effect on the Securities Market.” The conference was attended by more than 300 academics from eight countries and 132 colleges and universities. Stunda accepted the award plaque from Dr. James Carland, president of the Academy, from Western Carolina University.
